We made a reservation through an Expedia associate. Over the phone, prepaid, same day no refund. We had called for a reservation to a specific comfort inn, but it was full. The representative said this was a nice place as they had checked the online pictures and that the room even had a kitchen. Sounded good and we had busy schedule so we took it on faith. (Bad move)
We arrived late due to schedule expecting a nice place. It wasn't completely "horrible", but it wasn't nice either. It was old and had been reasonably renovated for a cheap motel. There were some minor maintenance issues in the room, such a broken handles on the dresser, loose plumbing fixtures, and cigarette burns. The room was mostly clean but there was mold in the bathroom.
Had we paid $50, I probably wouldn't have much to say. However, we were told it was nice and we paid over $100. I can see why the representative thought it was better. The pictures here for the motel look great. Trouble is, what we got doesn't look like that. It not even close.
Upon leaving we asked for a receipt and were refused. I have never had this happen in many years of hotel stays. The lady was, to me, somewhat rude and short about the whole thing, saying we had paid online so no receipt.
This hotel is, in my opinion, misrepresented. I feel we were cheated, plain and simple.
